Brooks is affable enough, but not remotely in the same league as Buckley was. Bummer he passed away, though the republican party was already distancing itself from him as too moderate for their future.

John McCain was too busy bitching to reporters about not getting enough information on Benghazi to go to the classified senate hearing on Benghazi.

Priceless.

Over the past few days we've heard just how upset John McCain has been about Susan Rice's maybe-nomination because of how she handled the terror attacks in Benghazi and the lack of information he's been given regarding those attacks. He was so busy doing that, that he missed a classified Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs hearing yesterday. Oops.

A Republican general has an affair with a Republican biographer who sends threatening emails to a Republican socialite who calls her Republican friend in the FBI who notifies Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor ....

who held back on releasing it to the public

Yet the Republicans blame Obama for using it for Political gain

Looks like failure at the Highest Levels in the Republican Party, and Obama was just letting them eat their own, which is so easy these days

The Republicans are still baffled about why they lost, but they may be getting somewhere:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/honeymoon-vegas-republican-governors-seek-couples-counseling-america-193643564--election.html

LAS VEGAS—Throughout history, the desert has been a place for personal reflection and self-discovery, where holy men retreat to seek insights into life's deepest questions.
For example, if you're a Republican in 2012, why your party couldn't get its act together and beat President Barack Obama.

America's Republican governors made a pilgrimage here this week in search of answers. Why did their party lose a contest they were told would be a cakewalk? For two days at the Encore resort and casino, the members of the Republican Governors Association met to lick their postelection wounds and mull over what went wrong. By week's end, there seemed to be more questions than answers: Was it Mitt Romney's fault? Are the Republican Party's ideas outdated? Why did Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock talk about rape so much? What can we do to make minorities like us more? Where's the craps table?

To help guide the beleaguered Republicans, there was no shortage of party brainpower on hand. In attendance was former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, the wise grandfather figure who offered comfort to the afflicted, but not without forcing everyone to swallow a bitter pill first. "We've got to give our political organizational activity a very serious proctology exam," Barbour told the governors Wednesday...

Barbour appears to finally acknowledge they're as#@&%es.

an idea spawned out of the OWS that will lead to the abolition of some bad debt.

It's unfortunate that Congress, Senate and OOP will not move to affect the significant change needed so that this type of debt cannot build up again…

And of course, I realize that the republigoon party is strictly apposed to the idea of a debt free society.

Ken M, with all due respect, where are you getting your news on the fallen General?

There is a new book out: The Generals: American Military Command from World War II to Today by Thomas Ricks. His last entire chapter is on Petraeus, who he's known for 15 years. His last entire book was on Petraeus.

I heard Ricks speak in person last tues.

Otherwise, The News Hour, Wall Street Journal, CNN, Wa Post, and many others.

Brief video of his remarks

Posting to political threads is like saying:

"I'm just going to have this one more cigarette..."

except it poisons your brain instead of your lungs.

Pro-active is the living

Reactive is the posting.

Peace, out.

Wrong Mister E
Posting here is a celebration of the Human way of life
Castigating the misinformed
and reveling in brotherhood with your bros that are on the Right Side of the Future

We are doing a service for all Human kind
Exposing lies, BS talking points, and Propaganda that is bringing this Country down

Why are you so negative?
You don't think we are living??
You are seriously mistaken. We are on the top of the game when it comes to living!

The more you know, the more you live, the more it becomes imperative that you educate the lost souls.

Maybe some one can give me a rundown on what's happening in Israel now.
Who started it?
Hamas or the Jews?

The historic record is a little biased, but it appears the Jews started it when Moses led them into Israel from the Sinai desert.

It will be going on until one side or the other is down to the last bullet, then they will throw rocks.

Thanks for posting that Ken.
Though I have to say that its a bit of a shame that it would take a German newspaper to spell things out so clearly.

Hamas is clearly the provocateur, and it seems clear that their intention is to force an Iraeli invasion.

This would seem crazy, but I think has to be evaluated through the lens of power. When attacked, a controlling power tends to be supported by the people. If a controlling power gov't is threatened, such an attack is often effectively used to consolidate support, and fight off challenges.

I can't help but wonder if that is the dynamic, as I can see no discussion as to why it is happening NOW.

Apart from Fritz's post, Robert Wright, addressed this pretty insightfully as well:

btw, as a scientist / evolutionist, you should already know who Robert Wright is.

Your question should read "Hamas or the Israelis?"

There are 12 to 13 million Jewish people across the planet and only 4.5 to 5 million live in Israel. Israel also includes Druse, Christian and Muslim citizens who vote, complete their required military service, etc., and make up about 1.5 million people total.

Jewish people are not responsible Israel's actions, Israeli citizens and the Israeli government are.
